“How to Get a Grip and Save Time and Money” is one of the seminars featured at the International BIG R Show on Saturday, Oct. 29, 2005 in Las Vegas.

Hand tool use contributes to a significant amount of over-extension and soft tissue injuries in the workplace. Fixture use or misuse can impact productivity, quality and worker safety.

Instructors from the National Center for Remanufacturing and Resource Recovery at the Rochester Institute of Technology will help registrants learn to select the best tools and fixtures to optimize the working system. The seminar will look at the good and bad attributes of tools and fixtures including size, shape, weight and other features.

APRA President Bill Gager commented, "This is just another great seminar to help the registrant save money and provide more comfort and safety for their employees. As a result, more dollars are dropped to the bottom line."
